    WHY THE INDIANS LIVE IN POVERTY.
    Stossel; “The Government “takes care of” the Indians.” That depends on what the meaning of “take care of “ is. Most Indians are not land owners because the government stole the most fertile land from the Indians and placed them on reservations on worthless barren land. Pyramid Lake Nevada belong to the Indians and fishing was a lucrative business for hundreds of years until the Government decided they need the water going into the lake for farming and diverted the water from the Truckee river and that killed the Cut Throat Trout fishing business for the Indians. Thus placing them in poverty. Examples like this all across the nation. “Take care of” the Indians” in an insult compared to what the Government took from the Indians. Noting the Government can ever do can ever compensate Indians for the land that they stole from them. Nothing the Government owns belong to them.

    If the Black man had started out with 40 acres and a mule, as promised, after slavery they would not be at the mercy of the government hand outs and being displaced by another form of slave labor. The same thing apply to Illegal Aliens and businesses greed for cheap labor per the Government which is costing Americans trillions. Pay back is a bitch.

    Stossel; “Property rights give us the right to prosperity.” You betcha.

    Ps. Shouldn’t Sandy victims take personal responsibility for natural disasters rather than expect handouts from the Federal Government?

    Letting the Bush tax cuts expire is not raising taxes.

    When the tax rate has been the tax rate for over a decade, they go up when you kill the law that helped to create jobs.

    But go ahead. Raise taxes when the economy is stumbling along. No need to restrict the government at, ever....

    The sad thing is the Libs believe that the end of the Bush tax cuts is going to fix all their problems.

    She's spouting garbled crazy shit like she always does.

    BTW, the Indians never recognized that they owned the land. So when they "sold" land to us, they thought it was a good joke because they didn't believe anyone could "own' land.

    They were wrong but by the time they realized it, it was too late, they'd bartered away everything.

    The whole individual property is an alien concept to Indian tribes too; the tradition, in most tribes, is communal. You didn't have families owning things separately in tribes; they did things together. They farmed together, raised children together, often even lived together in communal buildings. Most tribes moved around seasonally. They didn't stake out pieces of property as "theirs". So the whole bs about "we stole land from the Indians" is just that...bs. We couldn't steal it from them, since they never acknowledged they owned it..until they were displaced.
